Desmond, 28, was drafted by the Montreal Expos in 2004 (3rd round) and made his debut for the Nationals September 10, 2009. He was named to the 2012 All-Star Team and won a Silver Slugger in 2013. He is signed to a two-year $17.5 million contract that takes him through 2015, at which point he will be eligible for free agency.
